    We have those frogs as well. They hide more in my Nepenthes pitchers. The ones here are Cuban tree frogs. They can climb walls. That's how they get to your balcony Est.

    No, they can climb out. I've watched them retreat all the way down, and then climb back up.

    Beautiful photos! There are frogs about five minutes away from my house, although I have yet to see them...

    Nice Hyla cinerea(green tree frogs).
    Oh, and Meaven, you do have tree frogs in Minnesota. Grey tree frogs(Hyla versicolor) can be found there. As a matter of fact, I found one during my only trip there(it was behind a loose piece of bark on a tree-another loose piece of bark had a bat behind it-kind of spooky close up in the day, lol ).

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I used to get the same thing back at my last apartment...

Now I have a forest in my back yard with a big ravine running through it, and nothing... To be honest I'm a little disappointed. ;D
    Great pics Scott. It's very interesting that they are able to traverse the inside of the pitchers without difficulty. I would usually find frogs hiding under the pitchers in my own garden. I found one hanging out in a particularly large S. purpurea pitcher once, but assumed it had jumped out when it wasn't there later.
